Mourners are set to hold a vigil Thursday to remember a 23-year-old Boston woman investigators say was kidnapped and killed after leaving a Theatre District nightclub.

Jassy Correia disappeared last month and was found dead four days later in the trunk of a car driven by a 32-year-old Providence man. That man was arrested and now faces a federal kidnapping charge that could carry the death penalty.

The vigil will be held in Dorchester, where her family, including her 2-year-old daughter, live. It will be located at the Catholic Charities Teen Center at St. Peter's Parish at 278 Bowdoin St. and starts at 7:30 p.m.

A wake for Correia is scheduled for Friday evening between 5 and 9 p.m. It will be at St. Peter's Parish at 311 Bowdoin St. in Dorchester.

On Saturday, there will be a funeral Mass at the church at 10 a.m. Burial services will be private.
